Tv Season Info

Season 5 of this animated sitcom about the goings-on at a family-run hamburger joint is still cooking up plenty of fun. Among the highlights: Gene enters a musical based on "Die Hard" as the school's fall play, but he gets shot down. Also, Tina becomes romantically involved with a spirit who resides in the Belchers' basement; and Bob boycotts Thanksgiving, but that doesn't keep Linda and the kids from attending a Fischoeder-sponsored holiday festival, where a wild bird runs a-fowl and causes pandemonium among the attendees. At a family Christmas party, Bob and his father, "Big Bob", revisit an old argument, which leads to a can-you-top-this competition in the kitchen; and Tina, Gene and Louise sign up for a go-kart league, while Bob and Teddy begin pouring Teddy's home-brewed beer on the sly at the restaurant.

Critic Reviews for Bob's Burgers Season 5

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

The reason The Oeder Games works so well is because of the stakes it sets up. If it were just a water balloon fight, it wouldn't elicit much of a reaction. But, because it's a group of people fighting for lower rent, you want to see the Belchers win.

It represents so much of what Loren Bouchard and company do well, particularly in how it blends their love of both musical parody and the pop culture of the 1980s... to create something weird and wonderful and hilarious.

The fifth season wrapped with an episode that was one part Hunger Games, one part Community paintball and all parts parody. It served to bring all of the supporting characters together in a cohesive storyline.

Apart from Tina (who disappointedly wasn't greatly featured in the episode) Gene is one of my favorite characters on the show. He's an unabashedly optimistic drama queen and I can't help but love that.

Oct 6, 2014 | Rating: 4.3/5 | Full Review…

Well, Loren Bouchard and the gang certainly delivered the goods by emphasizing the show's remarkable musical talent, the whip crack wit of the scriptwriters, and the strange charm of all the characters within.

Oct 6, 2014 | Rating: 9.5/10 | Full Review…

A big part of this fun animation's subtext has always been its references to other works in the genre, and recognising those touchstones is just part of the pleasure of watching.

Aug 28, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Bob's Burgers is one of the best shows on TV -- not one of the best cartoons or one of the best shows on Fox, but one of the best shows period. It's laugh-out-loud funny, immensely quotable, but mostly it's just so damn charming.

Aug 28, 2019 | Full Review…

What makes comedies like Bob's Burgers so effective at pulling on the heartstrings is showing rather than telling.

Aug 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Unlike burgers and most animated TV series, this show somehow gets better with age. I already miss the Belchers. Quick, here are some bonus sliders before I get super depressed and realize we have to wait for the fall to see these guys.

Sep 4, 2018 | Full Review…

The show indulges in heightened emotions and inanity, but never fails to regard its characters' outsized feelings with affection and understanding.

Dec 5, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

I can't imagine a better way to announce that, oh yes, Bob's Burgers is back!

Oct 6, 2014 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Let The Simpsons and Family Guy dogfight all they want. Bob's Burgers has wings, and it sings.

    Season 5 of Bob's Burgers is delightfully funny and fresh, even if it doesn't reach the greatness of the past few seasons.

    Love this show so much. SO much better than most adult cartoons. Nothing socially offensive, yet still packed with humor that will leave you laughing so hard you cry. 10/10!
